Title: Method and system for generating a stereoscopic image of a garment

Abstract: A 3D image of an object model and images of patterns of a garment are generated. The images of the respective patterns are three-dimensionally deformed by arranging them in corresponding portions of the 3D image of the object model in an image space, and calculating collision deformations caused when the respective patterns are pressed against the corresponding portions based on an externally inputted information on the garment. A stereoscopic image of the garment is generated by connecting the deformed 3D images of the respective patterns based on the information on the garment. Since the pattern images of the garment are so deformed as to be put on the object model in a virtual space of the computer graphics and the stereoscopic image of the garment is generated by connecting the deformed pattern images of the garment, there can be generated a stereoscopic image of the garment realistically representing a state of the garment when the garment is actually put on the object.
